Can We?

You and Me. Poem.

Can We?

Sometimes

I want to be clever

compare you

to mountain heather

Be all poetic,

romantic and verbose

Ignite a fire

with verse and prose

Is that the best way,

though?

To say what I want to say?

no!

I could, perhaps

put it much simpler

Not try so hard

to be a wordy hustler

rather, just say

in a direct way

-

can we

you and me

just

lie together

hand in hand

heart to heart

forget the world

troubles, strife

if only

for a moment

-

watch the stars

feel the breeze

share a pause

just because

-

can we

you and me

two not one

just

lie together

-

watch the sun

rise and fall

forget it all

just for

a moment

a pause

-

can we

you and me

lie together

*

Thanks for reading!

    Loved this! Not saying hubba hubba here alright. Those earlier lines are particularly good “romantic and verbose, Ignite a fire, with verse and prose” and “put it much simpler, Not try so hard to be a wordy hustler”. ☺️👏 Excellent piece!
